#RegAFriend

Get just one friend to register to vote so you can all have a say. And be heard.

Chances are, after the big #GenerationVote push on National Voter Registration Day, you’re already registered to vote. 70 per cent of young people are. But without the other 30 per cent we’re going to have trouble getting heard. So, let’s round up the stragglers.

If we all get just one friend to register, we can have our say. And politicians will have to listen to us.

So go out and get one mate to register. Post a picture of you both on social media making the voter cross mark. Share your photo with the world using the hashtag #RegAFriend and this message:

  • I’ve just got [insert your friend’s name here] to register to vote so we’ll have a say in May. Now it’s your turn to get one friend to register to vote at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. When you’re done, share a photo of you both making the voter cross, tag yourselves and spread the word! #RegAFriend #GenerationVote

Or if you’re posting on Twitter:

  • I’ve just got [insert your friend’s name here] to register to vote so we’ll have a say in May. Now it’s your turn. #RegAFriend www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

What are you waiting for? Remember, getting one mate to register means power to more young people.
